the nitpicking at setlists has become a bit overwhelming recently and i guess one just has to laugh at it.. as opposed to.. "how well did the band play the songs that they did"
phish has been and continues to be the best live concert experience no matter what the song or how fast or slow it is.
i for one LOVE a slow tempo ballad after some heavy hitters as it gives everyone a chance to cool down. what i don't like are slow tempo/ballad songs that don't contain some sort of artistic intelligence and musical worth
trey is an astounding composer who has written an incredible body of work...
i feel as if roggae, if i could, billy breathes, dirt, bouncing.. to list some examples are wonderful tunes and it makes me laugh to see people hating on them so hard after they are played
i wish i could say the same thing for joy and show of life but the composer in me just finds those songs to be bland and not musically interesting.. but that being said.. will i let the fact that they played them ruin a show for me... not at all.. i ahd a fucking BLAST on sat night at bgca even though they encored with show of life.. the nitpicking has got to stop
